KNOXVILLE (News Sentinel) -

Three of eight people killed in a fiery church bus crash on Interstate 40 were identified Thursday by family members.

Ronnie Morrison spoke briefly with reporters Thursday at the University of Tennessee Medical Center. He said his father was the driver of the bus owned by Front Street Baptist Church of Statesville, N.C.

Jerry Wright in Statesville told the Associated Press that his brother, John Wright, 73, was killed while his sister-in-law, Beverly Wright, was seriously injured. She's among the 14 patients being treated at UT Medical Center.
